At Coliba, we embrace ONE TOUCH ECOLO as our approach to (resource recovery).
Resource recovery is the reclaiming of "garbage" materials for a new use. It includes collecting, sorting, and processing materials that are traditionally viewed as waste and transforming them into the raw inputs used to create new products. Recycling and composting are among the best known resource recovery practices.
ONE TOUCH ECOLO is our rallying cry to  make the best and highest use of all resources that are manufactured, consumed, discarded and re-manufactured.

  • It means using resources wisely, generating waste only as necessary, and finding ways to use waste products in ways that benefit the environment.
  • It means landfilling only those materials we haven't yet figured out a use for.
We are passionate about and committed to reducing waste, and to recycling everything we can. This is what we mean by ONE TOUCH ECOLO. It's a commitment, and we hope you join us in our efforts.
As part of our commitment to ONE TOUCH ECOLO, Coliba offers a full range of programs and services to the communities we serve. These are all tailored to help our customers reduce, reuse, recycle and make the best and highest use of the resources around them.

Enhancing Items

Abidjan, Accra, Nigeria faces a sobering waste crisis that will only worsen as the city’s population of 200 million people continues to soar. The overburdened municipal government collects only 40% of city garbage and a mere 13% of recyclable materials are salvaged from landfills. People living in slum conditions without formal waste collection are subject to increased flooding, disease spread, and psychological stress that results from unmanaged trash heaps. Concurrently, recycling firms in these cities are faced a supply constraint. They cannot access adequate supply of quality materials required for processing. One of the large recycling firms in Accra is operating its factory at 50 to 60% below capacity.

Change the world

Coliba sees a world without waste. Coliba Environmental Compliance Program reflects our corporate commitment to environmental stewardship by identifying issues, taking immediate corrective action as needed, and monitoring progress towards resolution. The program combines several elements to minimize environmental impacts of our operations. This includes an internal environmental audit program along with a “find-it, fix-it” mentality. This helps ensure that environmental requirements are not only met but that environmental management improves over time.
